you have to worry twice.'



“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.”

When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world

CHRISTIAN WAYS TO REDUCE STRESS...



An Angel says, 'Never borrow from the future. If you
worry about what may happen tomorrow and it doesn't
happen, you have worried in vain. Even if it does happen,
you have to worry twice.'

1. Pray.
2. Go to bed on time.
3. Get up on time so you can start the day unrushed.
4. Say No to projects that won't fit into your time schedule,
or that will compromise your mental health.



5. Delegate tasks to capable others.
6. Simplify and unclutter your life.
7. Less is more. (Although one is often not enough, two
are often too many.)
8. Allow extra time to do things and to get to places.



9. Pace yourself. Spread out big changes and difficult
projects over time; don't lump the hard thing s all
together.
10. Take one day at a time.
11. Separate worries from concerns. If a situation is a
concern, find out what God would have you do and
let go of the anxiety. If you can't do anything about
a situation, forget it.
12. Live within your budget; don't use credit cards for
ordinary purchases.



13. Have backups; an extra car key in your wallet, an extra
house key buried in the garden, extra stamps, etc.
14. K.M.S. (Keep Mouth Shut). This single piece of advice
can prevent an enormous amount of trouble.
15. Do something for the Kid in You.



16. Carry a Bible with you to read while waiting in line.
17. Get enough rest.
18. Eat right.
19. Get organized so everything has its place.



20. Listen to a tape while driving that can help improve
your quality of life.
21. Write down thoughts and inspirations..
22. Every day, find time to be alone.
23. Having problems? Talk to God on the spot. Try to nip
small problems in the bud. Don't wait until it's time to
go to bed to try and pray.
24. Make friends with Godly people.



25. Keep a folder of favorite scriptures on hand.
26. Remember that the shortest bridge between
despair and hope is often a good 'Thank you Jesus.'
27. Laugh.
28. Laugh some more!
29. Take your work seriously, but not yourself at all.
30. Develop a forgiving attitude (most people are
doing the best they can).



31. Be kind to unkind people (they probably need it the
most).
32. Sit on your ego.
33. Talk less; listen more.
34. Slow down.
35. Remind yourself that you are not the general manager
of the universe.
36. Every night before bed, think of one thing you're
grateful for that you've never been grateful for before.GOD HAS A WAY OF TURNING THINGS AROUND
FOR YOU.

'If God is for us, who can be against us?' (Romans 8:31)

Justice ---Getting what you deserve.
Mercy---Not getting what you deserve.
Grace---Getting what you do not deserve.

My God sits high and looks low!

I'm just a NOBODY
telling EVERYBODY about SOMEBODY who can save ANYBODY!

Every evening I turn my worries over to God, He's going to be uo all night anyway!
